I was in the garden shooting some new flowers which had bloomed. While there, I noticed a garden spider on its web and thought it would be a good idea to shoot it in UV (using ambient light) to see what it looked like. Then it dawned on me, why not shoot insects and various other things using IDS2e, which lets through UV and the limited visible light spectrum that insects see the world and themselves in?
The UV image was shot mounted on a tripod. The remaining images were shot handheld in ambient light, using ISO 800-3200 to ensure no motion blur in the images with the Olympus EM-5 with image stabilisation on.
Equipment used: Olympus EM-5, Coastal Optics 60mm F4, Baader U filter, IDS2e filter
